The legend that didn’t belong in Alaska
Like a Miss Universe beauty contest winner, she captured everyone’s heart. During her younger years, everybody wanted her snapshot.

Fangonilo is no joke on the court
If Kristhel Fangonilo made a New Year’s resolution, it would have probably been to pull more pranks on her teammates and coaches. Fangonilo certainly piled up the jokes in 2014, enough to have every member on the Kodiak girls’ basketball team on guard when she is around. “She is a little prankster,” Kodiak assistant coach Sandra Gregory said. “She likes to think that she is really good at it. I think she is still ...

Bob Pederson should not make rules for Kodiak
Letter to the Editor This letter epitomizes why we should not let Bob Pederson or any one person make and enforce the rules for the residents of Kodiak. It is pure politics and rhetoric that should never enter into the Kodiak Island Borough decision-making process.
